Alfred Hitchcock is, in my opinion (and others!), one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. I've seen all of his movies, except one. At some point I started taking notes. Renting his videos and watching them in slow motion soon followed. And then I fell among among film philosophers. After that, it was a slippery slope. Somehow, this led to the blog you now hold at your fingertips. It's also gotten the attention of the producers of the Broadway hit The 39 Steps, who've offered me some very cool opportunities to speak to their audience after the show. I now speak regularly to film students and at arts events. A highlight has been to emcee a fundraising benefit for Tippi Hedren's Roar Foundation, where I spoke about The Birds and interviewed the Hitchcock blond.

I believe Hitchcock will go down in history as the Shakespeare of the 20th Century. You geek your way. I'll geek mine.

This blog now has thousands of visitors stopping by each month from all over the world. I'd be thrilled to add you to my community of friends, so please drop me line here, or on Twitter or Facebook.
Note: Some of my posts assume that you're already familiar with the movie I'm discussing. If you aren't, you may want to visit its IMDb plot synopsis to get up to speed. Just hurry back to my site, okay?
Another note: This is a blog, not a peer reviewed journal, all right? As such, these are my thoughts in progress. I welcome your comments and discussion.

As if this weren't enough, you can dig further and get the real dirt on the origins of my geekery
